Peggy Porschen’s winter makeover

Us London locals normally avoid tourist hotspots like the plague, and yet here I am still regularly visiting Peggy Porschen, easily one of the most iconic and popular cafes in London (what?!). Truth be told, while Peggy Porschen’s cakes- probably the main item people go for when visiting- are a little too sweet for me, my secret favourite is their coconut milk lattes, which are easily one of the best in London! I’d been looking for another reason to visit Peggy…

Summer hadn’t even finished yet (let alone Autumn), and yet, typical of me, I was already excitedly searching for the most wintery of winter…

Brunch in Chiswick at No 197 Chiswick Fire Station

For months, I’d wanted to go for brunch in Chiswick, but, the hopelessly lazy person I am, had kept putting it off. The area’s at quite a distance from the rest of Central London, meaning a little effort is required to go there! Luckily, I had Instagram to give me a shove hihi. I kept seeing posts tagged with ‘brunch in Chiswick’ online. The one that kept popping up was an all-white restaurant spot with cacti and eye-catching pink chairs.…
